Evie Wyld on her novel All the Birds, Singing, plus fiction inspired by JFK's shooting.

Evie Wyld, one of Granta's 2013 best young British novelists, discusses her book All the Birds, Singing. Mariella Frostrup discusses the controversial emerging genre of New Adult.

Evie Wyld, just named on the 2013 Granta list of the best of young British novelists, discusses her latest novel All the Birds, Singing with Mariella Frostrup. Set between Australia and an isolated British sheep farm, where a menacing killer is working its way through her flock, the story of its female protagonist Jake slowly unfurls.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F Kennedy in Dallas, Texas. Writer and broadcaster Michael Carlson, himself a young boy living in the States during these events, explores how this defining event of the 20th Century has continued to capture the imagination of writers down the decades.

The period in life between adolescence and full adulthood can be a very difficult time - when many are studying for important exams, leaving home for the first time, having that first job, and all the while those disruptive hormones are coursing through their bodies. It's no surprise therefore that a new genre of books has sprung up called New Adult. But who is actually reading these books - are they a bridge between Young and Adult fiction or actually erotica more suited for an older readership? Mariella discusses the issue with Emily Thomas who's a publisher with Hot Key Press, Caroline Sanderson, a contributor to Books for Keeps, the Children's online magazine, and also Chair of the London Book Fair seminar "New Adults, Steamies, Crossed Genres - Reinventing Teen Fiction," and New Adult writer Liz Bankes, whose novel Irresistible came out in April.

Emma Hatton on taking on the role of Eva Peron in Evita. Operation Sanctuary in Newcastle - we speak to the two women at the forefront of the investigation into sexual grooming.

The musical Evita has returned to London's West End. The production marks the 65th anniversary of the death of Eva Perón. The actor and singer Emma Hatton talks to Jenni about what it's like to take on such an iconic role, and she performs one of the shows best known numbers live in the studio.

Eighteen people have been convicted of abusing young women and girls in Newcastle as a result of a two year investigation by Northumbria Police. Operation Sanctuary began with just one complaint, but revealed an extensive grooming network- similar to those found in Rochdale and Rotherham. We speak to two women at the forefront of the investigation: Detective Chief Inspector Claire Wheatley and Director of the Changing Lives charity Laura Seebohm.

We delve in to the Woman's Hour archive. In 1955 Monica Sims interviews Muriel Easter about her visual impairment.

New research conducted in the UK, Canada, France, the Netherlands and Germany challenges the 'simplistic' notion that women and girls become 'Jihadi brides' after being brainwashed and manipulated. Emily Winterbotham and Elizabeth Pearson, both academics based at RUSI, the Royal United Services Institute for Defence and Security Studies, unpick what they say is a misleading narrative.

Continuing our series on unworn wedding dresses, Emily Thomas talks to Jessica from Larbet in Scotland.

Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough considers airport lounges railway stations and liminal spaces

Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough discusses the In Between and the strange passions it arouses with a philosopher, an artist, a writer, a poet and a neuroscientist.

Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough explores the uncanny possibilities of the In Between with the neuroscientist Dean Burnett, award-winning poet Vahni Capildeo, artist Alexandra Carr, writer and walker of London and other wastelands, Iain Sinclair, and the philosopher, Emily Thomas.

How do our brains and bodies react in the In Between spaces of the airport lounge or the station platform where we're waiting to move on but temporarily in stasis and why have so many artists, writers and poets used these places to explore the uncanny, the strange and ourselves?

Dean Burnett: 'The Idiot Brain' is out now

Vahni Capildeo: 'Matters of Expatriation' is out now; her forthcoming collection 'Venus as a Bear' is out in April 2018

Iain Sinclair: 'The Last London' is out

Alexandra Carr: Sculpting with Light, University of Durham residency

Emily Thomas: Absolute Time: Rifts in Early Modern British Metaphysics; Early Modern Women on Metaphysics - both out in 2018

Producer: Jacqueline Smith
